Congrats to my frozen buddy up in the 'peg. 

Who knew the infamous, big bad LA Kings would poop the bed in back-to-back games against Edmonton and Calgary when it mattered most?  Was not expecting that at all... very nice of them to give you guys and Calgary a turn in the playoffs instead.

Just saw that EE has a case of these for pre-order for $165!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, that would be the new $13 price tag plus EE pretty much hiding the shipping cost into the case this time (the extra $15 on top of the $150 BBTS and others are charging).

This wave was still planned for retail last time I checked, but at the rate we're going, no one is going to care -

- $13 price is pretty terrible for the repacked figures - Hoth Luke, Imp Navy Dude, Stormtrooper
- Ceremony Leia got punted into Fall 2015 (at the earliest, if not 2016)
- Chewbacca is pretty much just a new head on an old body for $13
- Dutch Vander is pretty much just a new head on an old body for $13
- Dagobah Vader is horrible for $13
- the scale on the clones is all over the place

I tend to agree with Alan Sepinwall's tastes, so his glowing review of Daredevil is another sign it's going to be worth it.

I'm looking forward to checking out the show... but I probably won't get around to it until Justified, Americans, and Game of Thrones are done for the season.

Just like StL reporters say it's BS.

Hitch says the call on Stastny was correct. "It's a penalty," he said

Oh, but Hitchcock's a Canadian too. ;)

Kerry Fraser knows his stuff, no argument from me on that.  I agree it was a textbook slash... problem is that a slash like that is not called with any consistency, especially in a tight game.  Kinda ballsy to call it there knowing it will wave off a goal, but it was a slash on Myers... maybe Myers sold it a bit by dropping his stick, but then that's embellishment and you still disallow the goal.

75% of the time, a slash like that doesn't get called... but it's still a textbook slash.  Kinda like travelling in the NBA, I guess. :P

Up next - Scout Trooper with Speeder Bike

Look for more pics soon...

They're in trouble, but this implosion started LONG ago.

Pens 3, Sens 0 in the 1st
Me: "Wow, Jesse's Pens aren't dicking around tonight..."

Then...  Sens 4, Pens 3 (OT)
Sorry, Jesse. :( 

Wild 2, Hawks 1 = Playoffs!  ;D

Jets 1, Blues 0 =  ???
Who knew Pavelec would go 62-62 and pitch back-2-back shutouts agains MIN and STL?

Flames 3, Yotes 2
Brent gets no help from the desert dogs. :(

Oil 4, Kings 2 =  :o
Brent gets big help from the prairie patsies

Check out the first link for a list, Dave.  New stuff seems to be "conversations" with people involved in the saga and "Discoveries From Inside", which appear to be people looking at things in the LFL vaults - costumes, mattes, props, etc.

Sounds like the content may vary a bit by vendor though...  "*Digital bonus offerings may vary by retailer"

And you can also replace movies with certain figures (and update or whatever) and it's still the same.

It wasn't so bad when those resulpts were better figures and only $5-6 each.  Now that we are approaching $12-15 figures... it's a lot harder to rebuy those resculpts over and over again too.  :-\

Seeing quite a few stories around today that JJ Abrams may be back for Episode IX...  Wonder why the break for VIII?

Everything I have heard/read said it was just schedule compression.  Disney was already up and running pre-production stuff on Ep8 while JJ was still working on finishing Ep7.  With only a year and a half between the films (dec 2015 - may 2017) instead of the original two year plan, there wasn't enough time for him to finish one and then start the next.

Finally officially announced:
- Star Wars: The Digital Movie Collection Announcement
- Star Wars: The Digital Movie Collection Trailer and Vendor list

Is anyone else really tired of buying and rebuying these movies?

I bought the VHS trilogy.  Then the SE versions on VHS.  Then Ep1 on VHS.  Then the SE versions on DVD.  Then the prequel DVDs.  Then the SE versions with the original cuts bonus DVD.  Then the Bluray saga set.

Now, they want to milk me for another $90 for digital copies?   I don't think I can do it.  :-\

The Ultimate Fast Food Bracket - finally a bracket that is worth taking the time to vote...

Hey, don't knock HTS.  They have been hitting it out of the park lately.

There is a lot of new Mission Series and Saga Legends stuff still in-stock.  Maybe not the VHTF Hera, Sabine, or Jedi Guard at the moment, but a lot of folks here benefited from last 20% off & free shipping code they posted.

Might be a nice surprise to see the upcoming Black Series 3.75" or 6" figures posted while the new code is active...
